It has been rumored on BC message boards for weeks, but Wednesday Eric Hoffses and others confirmed that the Delaware's Maurice Jeffers will transfer to BC for his fifth year. The big man adds some frontline depth and experience to the team, but won't be a season changer. I just don't see him making a big leap from his Delaware productivity while at BC. What he does add is defense. Jeffers can block shots and hopefully protect the rim. Having a shot blocker should enable the wings and guards to be more aggressive on the perimeter.
Adding another 5th year means the team is still very unbalanced with an extreme mix of old and young. It is unlikely that BC will add any more basketball bodies before the season starts. I think this roster is better than last year's. Let's hope it comes together.
